Melanie Manos

Brighton, MI, United States

"Melanie Manos' performance work has romped on the tightrope between absurdity and solemnity since the late 1990s, giving a view into the tension between the individual and the exigencies of modern society. Whether through the Beckettian work of unending circularity, physically demanding minimalist body sculptures or the recent narrative-based work performed at Marygrove College in Detroit, Manos reminds me that performance is at its core political. Her work is a direct statement to and about the world around us, defining her space and speaking to ours. " - Deb King, writer, artist, curator, markszine.com
